    Wonder what happened to his willingness to sit out a year and wait for an HC opening?

    The Lions are an immediate contender in the black and blue division. This was a great signing for Detriot.

    It's gonna take a lot more than Mike Martz to right that ship. I wonder if Damon Woody is enjoying his big pay day or if he hates going to work every Sunday. I don't blame him for taking the money but it can't be easy to lose every week.

    He's happy, there's some good bar-b-q there, courtesy of southern migration.

    And that's just what Woody needs is BBQ. Looks like he's had plenty already. :)

    Especially because in another Forum I challenged him on his predictive ability (which I said was ZERO) and he just today guaranteed that Martz would "soon be with the Patriots." ROTFLMAO!

    Has he EVER been right???

    you guys are nuts for thinking detroit isnt a season or 2 away from being a force...thye just need to realize..harrington = nfle material..theyve waited long enough for him and its obvious it aint happening..no maybe a stud G/T would be a lil better...but other than that a premo :rocker: DL/LB combo would do it just right..in 2 drafts ull see..but they still wont have a thing on the pats. :D

    I really like the signing and think it will help them figure out if Harrington is NFL quality.
    Martz always has a top 10 ranked offense so this will definitely improve the weakest part of the Lions game.

    Fresh start for a lot of those underachieving players..

    It really doesn't take much to be a playoff contender in the NFC.

    win-win-win-winwin-win

    1. the lions get a truly talented OC, for whom OC isa the top of level of competence.
    2. matrz get a job at which he excels, not one at which he sucks.
    3. a set of team owers begin a 4-year path in this order:
    1 and 2 years of anguish while the team reaches a level of mediocrity, then declines.
    3rd year where owners, press and fans realize that MM has to go.
    4th year =, where MM is fired and a new coach comes inwhith a new system. everybody starts all over again.
    instead, the lions get a really good OC with a diabolical approach. Martz gets a job he does well. whoever brought him in looks like genius.
    whatcha got heeer is......wins 'till the sun go down.

    the right version., sorry

    i blew this completely.

    1. the lions get a truly talented OC, for whom OC isa the top of level of competence.
    2. matrz get a job at which he excels, not one at which he sucks.

    if somebody ever again hires him as a HC, the team owers begin a 4-year path in this order:
    1 and 2 years of anguish while the team reaches a level of mediocrity, then declines.
    3rd year where owners, press and fans realize that MM has to go.
    4th year =, where MM is fired and a new coach comes in whith a new system. everybody starts all over again.
    instead, the lions get a really good OC with a diabolical approach. Martz gets a job he does well. whoever brought him in looks like genius.

    I think the Lions will come on in leaps and bounds this year. Having watched a number of their games (gf is a Detroiter), it is so clear that they have talent but a complete lack of direction and discipline.

    Marinelli might just be the type of coach they should have hired last time around, instead of picking a 'nice guy' type who hails from Michigan. And Martz can't help but improve the most under-achieving offence in the entire league.

    Just have to wonder how much his heart will be in it, working for a rookie head coach, and Martz was close to being a super bowl winning coach.

    #54 Jersey

    What do you think they take another Wide Receiver.
    With Matt Millen there, I don't see them getting too far. Maybe a good offence, what about the defence and do you really think they will have a good draft or free agent signing, I don't see it. They may win the division but so what that maybe the worse division in the history of the NFL.

    That is what I am wondering, with his ego, if things don't go well, what is the likelihood of Martz not opening his mouth and undermining a HC in Marinelli ,who Martz may not believe should be a HC over him?

    Does Marinelli have the gravitas to keep Martz in his place?
